Enhancing STEM Education: Electronic Materials and Devices Workshop for High School Chemistry and Physics Teachers at the University of Kentucky

Date: 12:00 pm on Monday, June 12 to 1:00 pm on Tuesday, June 13.
Registration Deadline: Monday, May 15 at 11:59 pm.

Helping students to see and appreciate the real-world relevance of chemistry and physics can be a challenge. However, seeing how chemistry and physics enable the electronic devices that students use daily can provide a powerful teaching tool, helping to increase motivation and cement key concepts. In this hands-on workshop you will make organic light emitting diodes and dye sensitized solar cells. Furthermore, we will discuss how these devices work, the general role of chemistry and physics in the development of modern electronics, and you will be provided with the materials needed to have your own classes make and test dye-sensitized solar cells. Hotel accommodations (if required), dinner, supplies to make solar cells with your classes, and a stipend will be provided.

Please fill out this form and you will be contacted by Dr. Ken Graham to let you know if you have been selected.
